The institution follows energy conservation measures to effectively substantiate the consumption of energy in the campus, to improve environmental quality, to use renewable and non-renewable energy resources judiciously and conserve water.
The borewell facility in the campus caters to the water needs of the campus. The natural pond in the campus enables it to be energy and environment conserved area and the institution’s pond maintenance was lauded by the then honorable Governor Lt. Kiran Bedi during her visit to the campus.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) facility in the campus enables the availability of clean and fresh potable water for day-to-day consumption and usage of the people.
The institution has facility for on-site sewage systems better known as septic systems which naturally recycles the wastewater generated in various forms by recharging ground water with appropriately treated effluent and using the treated water for the gardening and plantation purposes.
Rain water harvesting system implemented in the campus provides water during drought, help mitigate flooding of low-lying areas, reduce the depletion of wells and enable groundwater to be sustained.
The energy generated from solar plant of the institution effectively fulfills the energy requirements of the campus.

Disposal of Non-biodegradable Waste:
E-waste generated in the laboratories are collected and stored in a place ear-marked for this purpose. Those items that may be recycled and reused are done so. The rest are disposed to authorized agents.
The source of water to be harvested is the roof water and the sheet flow. These are used productively for domestic water supply, stock water, irrigation of the fodder crops, trees and also for fish farming. The rainwater collected from the terrace of the buildings through the pipe line and saucer drain is connected to the rainwater harvest pit, filtered through the media of sand & several sizes of stone jelly, pebbles and finally stored below the ground level.
Evidence of success
Problems Encountered and Resources Required
1. Title – Hospital Infection Control Committee (HICC) in infection control practices
of medical graduates
2. Objectives of the Practice
To create medical graduates equipped with skills to identify the threat areas and
establish effective infection control practices and reduce the risks of Health
Care Associated Infections in their professional practice settings
3. The context
SVMCHRC has a fully functioning Hospital Infection Control Committee (HICC),
which deals with patient safety and infection control practices. At regular sessions
the students and interns are trained in the safety norms and guided principles of the
infection control practices to be followed in the hospital setting.
The following knowledge and training given:
Para- clinical Phase
Clinical Phase and for Interns
Training the students in HAI control has equipped them with what to check, what and what not to do in patient care areas during clinical rotations which are reflected in reduced burden of HAI.
The universal precautions imparted to the students by the HICC had enabled them to handle patients with safe practices in times of COVID pandemic.
The students are invariably taught on segregation and safe disposal of biomedical waste thereby enabling them to emerge as eco-friendly medical practitioners.
Antibiotic resistance is a global problem and the students are taught about the judicious use of antibiotics which equips them to reduce the overall burden of antimicrobial resistance in their clinical practice settings.
Infection control measures in OT are imparted to the students for proper surgical prophylaxis, intra and post-operative care to prevent surgical site infections. This enables them to adopt safe OT practices in the clinical settings.
These practices are unique in imbibing deep understanding and heightened responsibility in the medical graduates thus preparing them to render quality healthcare services to the patients and to the community.
